BILL NO. 18-058Ord.No:          18907

Agenda Title:

18-058 - 2R. An ordinance amending Article 18 of Chapter 5 of the Independence City Code dissolving the License Surcharge Annual Review Committee and empowering the Street Improvement Oversight Committee to monitor the license surcharge and make recommendations annually to the City Council.
Recommendations:

Staff recommends approval of this ordinance.  
Executive Summary:

The New Construction License Surcharge was approved by the City Council on August 21, 2000, by Ordinance No. 14575.  After a ballot measure passed by voters on November 7, 2000, the New Construction License Surcharge became effective on January 1, 2001.  With the adoption of Ordinance No. 14575, a License Surcharge Annual Review Committee, composed of eleven (11) members, was established to monitor the license surcharge and to make recommendations annually to the City Council.
 
Background:

The City Council has struggled to fill vacancies, and currently has six (6) vacancies, on the License Surcharge Annual Review Committee.  As such, the License Surcharge Annual Review Committee currently is not able to have a quorum to conduct business.  As it is the intention of the City Council to dissolve and/or consolidate underutilized City Boards and Commissions, this proposed amendment revises Sections 5.18.002.B.5 and 5.18.010 in Article 18 of Chapter 5 of the Independence City Code, dissolving the License Surcharge Annual Review Committee and empowering the Street Improvement Oversight Committee to monitor the license surcharge and make recommendations annually to the City Council.
